Canvas Weddings provides unique and artistic wedding planning services in New York's Hudson Valley and beyond. We like to think that our work on weddings is similar to an artist’s work with his paintings. In order to create his masterpiece, he must understand and appreciate his root element ---the canvas. That’s how we approach our wedding work --- we first and foremost get to know, understand and appreciate the couple --- our root element --- whose special day we are helping to create. Everything else flows from that.
We have found that the more couples treat their weddings as expressions of their unique identity as a pair, the more simple, stress-free and joyful the planning process becomes. Modern wedding planning can be a taxing and exhausting process --- in fact, some say that the average wedding consists of nearly 5,000 details! As such, we believe it is our duty to help each couple determine their unique point of view, which will, in turn, narrow the focus of the event and simplify the decision-making process.
As your coordinator, clients can rely on us for prompt communication, an organized approach, a trusted confidante and a friend whose main goal is to help them create an artful, expressive day that they can enjoy and look back on with fondness.
Founder Corinne Van Arsdale created Canvas Weddings with the notion that every couple (and every wedding) is different, which is why why we offer a wide variety of services to help you create your wedding masterpiece. We offer packages ranging from wedding weekend coordination to full-service start-to-finish planning, as well as a la carte services and hourly rate consultation sessions. Canvas Weddings also provides coordination services for surprise engagements, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, engagement parties, and more. Wedding Coordination packages start at $2,500.00.

Hudson Valley Location Services
We worked with Corinne for location services, to find a venue in the Hudson Valley (we're based in NYC). Throughout the entire process she was a great listener and very easy to work with. She even drove and picked us up at our front door to take us to our venue visits (the appointments were too early to take the train). Corinne is definitely an expert on the Hudson Valley and all of the venue managers we met seemed to know her well. I would highly recommend Corinne if you're looking for venues in the Hudson Valley but are unfamiliar with the area. Being our first step into the wedding planning process, we were relieved to have found an easygoing, knowledgable and all-around good person to begin the process with!Sent on 08/03/2020

We Love Corinne!!
We had a lot going on in our careers right before our wedding, so having a wedding planner on board was a must. We are so happy that we found Corinne because she was so organized, responsive and flexible with us. The planning process was really a minimal source of stress, even in the week leading up to our wedding. Corinne completely understood what we envisioned for our wedding day--from the aesthetic to the easy-going vibe, and she really helped to elevate the ideas we discussed with her. Our wedding weekend was such a enjoyable time for us, and given that everything was squared away, we were able to spend a lot of quality time with our family and loved ones. We really enjoyed working with Corinne and highly recommend her!!Sent on 01/04/2020

Corinne is invaluable!! And you DIY brides especially listen up!! Words cannot express how crucial she was for Matt and I during the journey towards our wedding. From the moment we met Corinne, she instantly brought us out of a state of overwhelming panic and confusion. She had checklists, seating charts, made phone calls for us, and told us not to worry about countless things, as she did them for us. She was also in touch with us to remind us of things we needed to do and always made herself available for a chat or meeting. Corinne saved us so much time and unnecessary stress that came with organizing our wedding.Sent on 01/05/2020
She helps you better understand your own vision and style and makes recommendations, shows you how to organize it and put it all together. What it becomes (thanks to her) is something tangible and beautiful. Our wedding was incredible. She was there from the very beginning, coordinating everyone and everything: Food, bartender, welcome table, ice cream truck, table set up, musicians, DJ and florist .. not to mention arranging the site and coordinating guests. Not only is she ridiculously organized and professional, but she is a genuine, caring and loveliest soul you could meet. Her presence made every difference before and during the wedding (not to mention the rehearsal day!) If you are looking for someone to assist with your special day, I cannot recommend Corinne highly enough. We could NOT have done it without her!
